Many students are getting help in Geography, History and Social Studies from me. Even for IP Geography and History, schools are refreshing the syllabuses regularly.

Reading fees and subject registration fees

Sometimes reading fees are charged for new texts and a small subject registration fees are charged per subject every semester. Title fees per text is also charged in lieu of new texts if the texts has been previously taught by me. All these fees are non-refundable regardless of whether the sessions are terminated by the tutor or the parent.

Importance of consistency and continuity in tuition sessions

Having the same teacher/tutor is important. Regular changes of teachers and tutors are disconcerting because of the disruptive effects on the sessions and hence on the students. It takes time to build up rapport and for the tutor or teacher to earn the trust and confidence of the students, so having a succession of different tutors is a no-no for students. It also takes time for the teacher to help the students and to see results of that help.
